learn how to integrate positive universal changes and evolve
Seeing Earth from space creates powerful positive changes in people - known as ’The Overview Effect'. Learn how to integrate those changes to evolve into a ‘Planetary Human’.
Psychotherapist, clinical hypnotist, author, poet, ‘possibillian’ and ‘planetary contextualist’ – Richard Whitehurst has been involved in consciousness, meditation and human transformation for over four decades. A former president of the Ericksonian Hypnotherapist Association of Australia, Richard is a practicing clinical hypnotherapist with some 30 years’ experience in utilizing therapeutic trance states to bring about positive changes in thousands of his clients. A powerful transpersonal experience that occurred in 1970 eventuated in an ongoing project of research, practice and teaching involving a variety of meditative and contemplative modalities –including 6 years of study, travel and practice on the Indian subcontinent and some 9 years as a Vedic monk.
Richard’s current therapeutic orientation is grounded in direct perception of non-conceptual awareness. In this transformative setting the conventional, volitional ego-self drops away revealing an ineffable ‘non-state’ that exists, not as another object in consciousness but rather as the non-temporal non-spatial ground of consciousness ... the wide-open-pure-awareness-context in which the dream-like story of one’s life is taking place. In a similar vein of expanded contextual understanding Richard is Founder and Director of The Overview Institute of Australia along with its sister organization ~ Planetary Human. These organisations have been established to expand planetary awareness and evolve ‘planetary humans.’ Richard has appeared on radio and TV, and has lectured extensively in colleges, universities, workshops and conferences in America, England, Europe, India and Australia.
